Been following the Register’s Meeting Town Trivia. Thus far I have been able to follow their clues to guess all the meeting towns EXCEPT for the life of me I just can’t see how the clues for Center Point work. Those clues seem to point me to Wyoming, IA – which I know can’t be right since Oxford Junction is the meeting town for Day 6. I’d…[Read more]
Everything you said – maybe more. Got both maps, have a file drawer filled with routes maps and daily elevation profiles for every ride since 2004. Almost went into mourning as I contemplated that I might be getting too old (75)to ride it this year. Yes I am obsessed with RAGBRAI. And I am proud to admit it.
We have a three day rider in our group. She was issued the 3 individual rider bands and a non numbered bike band. Sounds like they missed getting one to you. I’d check at the RAGBRAI booth in your start town and see if they can provide you one.

Scott, I think you can say that camping in Council Bluffs on Friday night is quite doable. Now to the other part of your inquiry – should you fly in on Friday or Saturday. If it were me (and all other things being equal) I’d do Friday. You will have enough time to assemble the bike, get your stuff and set up your tent if you wait until Saturday…[Read more]
I can only speculate that they are shipped out in the order of the wristband numbers. The team always has sequential numbers which appear to be separated from sheets/rolls of preprinted bands. Thus those teams which were assigned numbers first would get their packets first.
The week delay between creating the label and shipping sounds like what…[Read more]
